Ford Escort Hatchback RS 2000 3d (1988/F) - Owner Review

They are old dated cars that were good in there day, but we are now in 2002. Bumpy, noisy, solid ride. Its a nasty car that has had its day. Its very uncomftable. Back ache is a must after every journey.

Ford Escort Hatchback (90-01)

Value

2 out of 5

Any 'E' reg Escort is now worth £200 tops. The RS2000 is one of these with a few frilly bits. They are old dogs that are over priced and 99% of the chance will have been thrashed.

Costs

1 out of 5

High petrol costs, high insureance and lots of expensive bills.

Poor. You need to have Thatham fitted, otherwise when you get up in the morning the car will not be there.
